Breast Reduction

Expert Breast Reduction Surgery Ohio

Breast Reduction Surgery (also known as “Reduction Mammaplasty”) is pretty much exactly what it sounds like – a relatively common procedure designed to reduce the size of breasts in an effort to provide both greater everyday comfort and self-confidence.

Are You The Right Candidate for Breast Reduction Surgery?

From pregnancy to genetics, there are a number of reasons why breasts can increase to a volume that exceeds your discomfort threshold. Long story short: If you’re unable to live the comfortable, active lifestyle you want for yourself, breast reduction surgery is an option for you – especially if you’re generally physically healthy, your breasts are fully developed and you don’t smoke.

Breast Reduction Surgery Recovery Time

After your procedure, you will be prescribed pain medications and given a supportive bra to offer additional support throughout the healing process. Most patients can resume normal day-to-day activities within 1-2 weeks of surgery and athletic activity within 4-6 weeks. Scars should fade completely between 6-12 months.

What Are The Risks?

Breast reductions are among the safest surgical procedures offered in the plastic surgery industry. However, with every procedure, there are some risks that need to be addressed. These risks include, but are not limited to:

  • Allergic Reaction to Glues, Tapes & Other Surgical Materials
  • Anesthesia Complications
  • Bleeding
  • Blood Clots
  • Potential Inability to Breastfeed
  • Scarring

Breast Reduction Cost

Every situation is unique, and some procedures may be coupled with others to achieve a specific desired result which can make cost estimation difficult. However, we have found that the typical high-quality breast reduction procedure in Columbus, Ohio costs around $5,800.

Note: This price does not include anesthesia which can vary patient-to-patient based on need and desire.

A Closer Look At The Breast Reduction Procedure

Breast reduction surgery involves the removal of excess breast fat, skin and tissue to create ideally-proportioned breasts as they relate to your specific body size. The entire procedure takes between 2-3 hours and you should be able to return home that day. This procedure may also be combined with a breast lift to achieve desired results. And, thanks to newer surgical techniques, we are able to keep scarring to a minimum!
